    Did you know that you can do a half-square triangle block in the corner and add straight pieces to make the miter?

    I love that pattern and made one, but haven't finished quilting it yet. I am not able to use a rotary cutter, so the directions really confused me. I just cut the widths needed as I went along. It wasn't that hard to sew up, tho. It was the cutting/planning. I wish they put alternate 'old fashioned' directions on patterns.

    I will agree, the way the directions are written it is easy to be confused. Not sure what you mean by "old fashion" directions, but what is supplied aren't all that easy to understand! Once it is completely cut and organized it will be very simple to sew. How are you finishing the quilting on it, tying or machine quilting?

    Thank you for taking the time to respond.

    I'm attaching a jpeg of an exploded block. All the blocks are the same. After you make the blocks just add the sashing.

    The two borders could be pieced strip sets and then cut down. Probably something like one strip of black 4-1/2" x WOF and one strip of background 2" x WOF, subcut into 2 inch strips AND one strip of black 12-1/2" by WOF and one strip of background 2" x WOF, subcut into 2 inch strips.

    Perfectly understandable when shown in this fashion. Thank you very much. Now it all makes sense.
